Support growing for a new Telemark; $41 million project envisioned

The former Telemark Lodge is pictured on Feb. 22, 2020. The Telemark Redevelopment group is proposing a Telemark Village on the property to serve as a hub for year-round recreation.

After what seemed to be at an impasse for several years, the languished Telemark Resort may be in the midst of a major rebirth as a potential renewal project gathers substantial support.

Over the past year, under the leadership of former Cable Chamber of Commerce director James Bolen, a previous plan to redefine the historic resort has been completely restructured. Bolen is the operator of Lake Owen Resort, served on the Wisconsin Tourism Council and currently serves on the board of Bayfield County Economic Development.
